From Barnes & NobleGlen Cook has two series currently going that, while wildly different in voice and tone, have one thing in common: They are both terrific books. His Garrett series is a fun, rollicking mixture of fantasy (complete with magic, elves, vampires, and a host of original trappings) and hard-boiled private eye stories. The Garrett books are written in chronological order, but they are stand-alone novels. She is the Darkness, however, is the latest book in his Black Company series, a dark, sprawling, richly detailed fantasy world spanning seven novels to date. The Black Company is a mercenary band of soldiers in a world of dark magic and darker people. Not for the faint of heart, these books are written in a strong, compelling voice, with every detail fully realized and a magic system unlike any I've seen elsewhere. Truly a unique vision, the Black Company is a wonderful series, and this is yet another terrific installment.
